Quilts of Valor - Defender’s of Freedom BBQ Event

On Sunday May 21st, I spent five hours with some great people, veterans and their wives. Carol and I went to Joe and Teresa LaSole's home to help sign in the veterans and give them a door prize number with which they could win a QOV quilt from the Irving Quilt Guild. We had 18 to give out, but a lot more veterans. So we gave them all away, to WW2, Vietnam and Mideast men who all fought to keep us free. We had Marines, Navy, Army and Air Force represented. There was aband who gave their time for free, and Humperdinks who furnished the beer, and neighbors and friends who furnished the food. It was all upbeat and lots of fun. But I am sorry we didn't have a quilt for each and every one who came. They were all appreciative when they won and we both got a lot of hugs and thank you's. The LaSole's do this once a year at their expense and everyone has a great time. Maybe next year we can come up with more than 18. Why don't we think about starting some now for next spring and make more great veterans happy to get one? So I hope I get to go again next year and give out more quilts. Besides the food was really great!! Gail Walsh
